How to Use Mock Test to Prepare for Your Driving Licence Exam

This first multiple-choice test has 20 questions about road rules, signs, and signals. You should correctly answer 17 of these questions before continuing. Result is shown at the end of the test!

Like all of our mock tests, questions are drawn from a larger pool – a different pool for each mock test!

U.K. Highway Code

Remember, you need to know most of the road rules found in the U.K. Highway Code to pass the exam.

The Highway Code is also an excellent source later in life, when you need to check facts or refresh your knowledge.

Study Tips

When you study the Highway Code, use notes to rewrite information with your own words. The longer, the better.

Scribbling down road rules with your own words triggers a reflecting process which helps you learn faster and better.

If possible, discuss rules, questions, and answers with a teacher or a parent. They can give you helpful advice or insights. After studying the code or handbooks, take as many practice tests as you need. Mock questions will cover all areas necessary to pass the DVSA examination. But remember, quality first, quantity second. Don’t try to memorise answers. Focus on true understanding.

You will most likely miss one or two questions on each mock test. Understand why you miss a question and try to find patterns in your weaknesses. Did you read too quickly? Did you jump at an answer without reading all options? Or did you simply not know the answer?

The best learning comes from drilling your weaknesses to perfection.
